Anyone who was brave enough, or audacious enough, to bring a Barbie doll to our school in Senegal ran the very real and horrible risk of having the doll's breasts cut off. I assume the people in charge considered breasts to be a vulgar thing. It makes one wonder the affect this hideous mutilation had on the girls, doesn't it! "Breasts are bad! You should be ashamed to grow them! Being a woman is sinful! Being a woman is downright vulgar."
What a shame. What a sad, sad shame.
